Which letter shows interphase?
Which letter shows early prophase?
Which letter shows late prophase?
Which letter shows metaphase?
Which letter shows anaphase?
Which letter shows telophase and cytokenesis?
What is interphase?
The period of a cell's life when it carries out its normal metabolic activities and grows.
What happens during interphase?
The DNA-containing material is in the form of chromatin, and the nuclear envelope and one or more nucleoli are intact and visible.
What happens during early prophase?
The chromatin coils and condenses, forming bar-like chromosomes. As the chromosomes appear, the nucleoli disappear, and the two centrosomes separate from one another. Microtubles lengthen and propel the centrosomes toward opposite poles of the cell. Asters extend from the centrosome matrix.
What happens during late prophase?
The nuclear envelope breaks up, allowing the spindle to interact with the chromosomes. Microtubules draw the chromosomes to the center of the cell.
What happens during metaphase?
The two centromeres are at opposite poles of the cell. The chromosomes align at the midline of the cell.
What happens during anaphase?
The centromeres split, and each chromatid becomes its own chromosome. The microtubules pull each chromosome toward a pole as the poles are pushed apart.
What happens during telophase?
The identical sets of chromosomes at the opposite poles of the cell begin to uncoil and resume their threadlike chromatin form. A new nuclear envelope forms around each chromatin mass, nucleoli reappear within the nuclei, and the spindle breaks down and disappears.
What happens during cytokenesis?
A contractile ring of actin microfilaments forms a cleavage furrow around the cell and pinches it apart.

What is an epithelium?
A sheet of cells that covers a body surface or lines a body cavity.
What is connective tissue?
Tissue that connects the tissues and organs of the body together, forms the basis of the skeleton, stores and carries nutrients, surrounds blood vessels and nerves, and leads the body's fight against infection. Support all epithelia.
What is the purpose of cilia?
To push mucus and other substances over the epithelial surface
What is the purpose of microvilli?
To maximize the surface area across which small molecules enter or leave cells and help anchor mucus sheets to the epithelial surface.
What are desmosomes?
The main junctions for binding cells together.
What is the function of gap junctions?
They allow small molecules to move directly between neighboring cells.
What is the function of the apical surface of epithelium?
To abut the open space of a cavity, tubule, gland, or hollow organ.
What is the function of the basement membrane of epithelia?
To provide support
What is the function of the basal lamina?
It consists of proteins secreted by epithelial cells and acts as a selective filter and scaffolding.
